V-6 4 Speed Shift Linkage Replacement Cables
|Most aftermarket cables available today have proven to be very poor quality. They also have little or no heat shielding. Heat is the single biggest factor in Fiero manual transmission cable failures. Over time heat makes the inner cable swell making the cable hard to move. Original GM cables had a very thick multilayer heat shielding wrap on them. Few if any GM cables are still available. I have these cables custom made for me and they are very good quality. Although my cables are very heat resistant they also (more importantly) have a similar multilayer heat shielding wrap on them. My cables offer several other advantages. See notes below.
- Black sheathing just like OEM.
- OEM style heavy duty insulation.
Note: The select cable is the one that provides the side to side motion of the gear shift. This is the thinner diameter cable. The shift cable is the larger diameter cable.
If you buy this cable from someone else it will have a very thin paper thick heat shielding on it. The reason cables fail in time is from heat soak (exhaust pipes, coolant tubes and hoses and engine heat). My cables have a very heavy multi-layer aluminum skinned ceramic blanket like OEM cables. This ensures a long cable life. Factory cables have a thick heat shielding on them for a reason. Long life.
My cables are made to the correct length. Others advertise that they are adjustable and expect that you will make them the correct length after you receive them. My cables are ready to install. No guess work involved.
All my cables include a new chrome plated ball stud. My competitors expect you to use the old rusty and worn (most likely now undersize) ball stud from your old cable. This will leave you with looseness on that end of the cable and possibly the cable may pop off!
You will need to reuse your original rubber firewall grommet. To remove it from your old cable take a razor knife and cut in to it up the old cable sheathing (halfway into the rubber grommet). Reinstall the rubber firewall grommet on the new cable.
My new Fiero shift cables are as awesome as advertised! Absolute top quality & perfect fit. I won’t hesitate to do business with you again; you’ve earned my loyalty.

Use the dropdown box to select SHIFT or SELECT cable.
The best way is to take the center plastic skeleton completely out. The plastic skeleton tends to be brittle now that these cars are so old. If you try to install the cables with it in place you may break it. To take it out you need to remove the radio and heater control. To get the heater control out disconnect the cable from the heater box (one hex head screw) in the passenger wheel well. Remove the shift console top and the arm rest. Carefully remove the plastic skeleton. Now you can remove and replace the cable(s). Once the cables are out use a razor knife and cut half way into the rubber grommets. Remove the grommet(s) from the cable(s) and install them on the new cable(s). Install the new cable(s) and reinstall the skeleton and the rest of the items you removed. Be gentile when tightening the screws. Tighten them just enough to hold as the plastic is getting brittle and it is easy to strip out the holes and/or crack the plastic.
Another installation suggestion:
Buying my replacement cable retaining clips might be a worthy investment. When I change cables in Fiero's removing the factory spring steel retaining clip is seriously difficult. Reinstalling it is also difficult. You might consider buying my replacement cable clips. They go on and off very easy:
I do not offer free shipping.
Because I use postal flat rate boxes for heavy orders there is no program that can add the proper amount of shipping to every order. So all shipping is added manually by myself after you place your order. That is explained here: Shipping added later explanation
When you place an order the shipping amount will show $0.00. Soon after you place an order you will receive an email confirmation that shows the amount of shipping that was added to your order.
Shipping: Shipping is $12.00 (Midwest-USA)
Final shipping cost is determined by weight of the item(s) and distance from Milwaukee, WI. Shipping prices quoted are for items shipped to the Midwest area in the USA. If you are ordering a single item or multiple items the total shipping price is determined after you place the order. I try to keep my shipping prices to a minimum and use Postal Flat Rate boxes whenever I can utilize them for an order.
